This thread is for written works (short fiction, novels, etc.) we loved that were published in 2018, with an eye both towards recommending works to fellow readers and to throw titles in the Community Consideration Hat for next year's awards season. This is NOT a self-promo spot, so recommendations should not come from those works' authors. Mod has x-ray vision and can see right through your clever self-promo-ing disguise. (Many thanks again to MonsterTamer for the reminder.)
